  5. 5. WORKSHEETS AND WORKCARDS Presenter: Esther Yaneth Rodriguez Lozano
  6. 6. WORKSHEETS Created by professor Giovany Mosquera

  8. 8. WORKCARDS
  9. 9. Workcards are: <ul><li>made in sets. </li></ul><ul><li>each card offers a different fairly short task. </li></ul><ul><li>They are not written on. </li></ul><ul><li>Answers are placed on a separate piece of paper. </li></ul><ul><li>They are permanent and reusable. </li></ul><ul><li>They take more effort and time to produce. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Guidelines for teacher-made materials <ul><li>Worksheets and workcards should: </li></ul><ul><li>Be neat. </li></ul><ul><li>Begin with short and clear instructions. </li></ul><ul><li>Be clear and attractive to look at. </li></ul><ul><li>Be clearly do-able by learners. </li></ul><ul><li>(optionally) include a self-check facility. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Implications and considerations <ul><li>Worksheets and workcards are occasional and supplementary material. </li></ul><ul><li>They provide what learners need in a specific point. </li></ul><ul><li>Variety. </li></ul><ul><li>Relevant and personalized. </li></ul><ul><li>Answers to learners´ needs in a way no other materials can. </li></ul>
